As a clinical psychologist who works primarily with children and adolescents, my primary goal is to gain an in-depth understanding of my patients and for my patients to feel that I truly understand them. It is my goal to establish a relationship in which there is mutual trust, understanding, and respect, through which a meaningful therapeutic connection can be established. It is through such a connection that a therapist can inspire his or her patients to think differently and develop greater accuracy in how they process their world. As patients become more accurate in processing their environment, they gain a sense of clarity, which leads to better decision-making and a happier life. I believe that accurate diagnosis is crucial in helping me better understand how my patients think, feel, and operate in the world. Perhaps the most crucial aspect of working with children and adolescents is that they, their thoughts, and their feelings are important and valued.
